The service is horrible. They are happy to welcome you and then its over. There is one bartender for 20 customers. It takes forever to get a drink, which helps Sandals not serve too many "all inclusive drinks". The staff will help you when they desire and are in no hurry to please the customer, Perhaps they would have more... More

Thanks Captain John for several great dives. The crew was helpful and attentive, doing a very good job of politely helping less experienced divers. The manifest was checked after each dive along with logging starting and ending cylinder pressure and max depth. Loved being able to do two dives on each trip. Great resort diving operation!

The short version: Sandals Dive Center was well run, organized, clean, professional. The dive boat was nice, spacious, organized and professional. The gear provided was fine. The diving was fine. Is it the best diving you've ever done? Probably not, but it was all a lot of fun. The longer version: My husband and I are experienced open water divers... More

Excellent dives run by experienced staff. There are never too many divers which makes the dives more about experiencing life under water than about avoiding other divers. The excursions are well organised and cater for a range of capabilities.

Everyone involved with scuba diving was simply great. Captain John’s entire crew was fantastic. Always a helpful crew both in and out of the water. The guides were great at finding exactly the attractions we wanted to see. The instructors were great at teaching and helping us advance to the next level. Everyone learned our names faster than I could... More

Great sailing, diving and snorkeling. We owned a Beneteau 50 with a lease back to Moorings. This is our favorite sailing of anywhere we have ever been. Sandals St Lucia offers all inclusive scuba diving. Couples only to stay in **** resort. Sundays they offer a checkout dive for those needing it. Also night diving and lessons.
